Accepting Islam

"This day I have perfected your religion for you and completed My favour upon you and have chosen Islam as your religion."

(Qur’an 5:4)

How to Accept Islam

All praise be to Allah, many people have accepted Islam at IB over the years. Many chose to take part in a public shahadah (testimony of faith) ceremony, however it can also be done privately for those wishing to do so.

Becoming a Muslim is a simple and easy process.  All that a person has to do is to say the shahada, which is pronounced as:

“Laa ilaaha illa Allah, Muhammad ar rasool lullah.”

These Arabic words mean:

 “There is no one worthy of worship accept Allah, and Muhammad is the Messenger (Prophet) of Allah.” 

Once a person says the shahadah with conviction and understanding its meaning, then he/she has become a Muslim!

We provide a translation of the Qur’an in English and other useful start up materials for every new Muslim taking the shahadah at the centre.

Shahadah in progress after Friday prayers at the IB Centre

We also hold regular special classes for new Muslim brothers and sisters to help them learn more about Islam. Please see the home page calendar for current classes.

Brother Chris Accepts Isam

Brother Chris, a night club bouncer from Leeds, accepted Islam at IB today after Asr prayers. Chris had been researching Islam for some time and became increasingly convinced that Islam was the truth. Following discussions with Muslim friends, he gave up pork, alcohol and smoking and even grew a beard to feel more Muslim. The final step was to take the shahadah. May Allah make him steadfast. Ameen.

MORE EID SHAHADAS! Brother Thomas from Slovakia accepted Islam today after Jumuah prayers, mashallah. He said that one of his Muslim friends had been telling him about Islam for a while and now he was 'more than ready' to be a Muslim. We ask Allah to make Brother Thomas a good Muslim and hope to welcome more and more reverts to the centre in the near future inshallah.

Alhamdulillah, we had our very first shahadah at the new centre after Jumuah today. Brother Dean accepted Islam today in front of a capacity audience. He later explained that he had come to know about Islam from friends and also recognised Islam as a continuation of the teachings of the Bible. We ask Allah to make Brother Dean a strong Muslim and look forward to him joining us for Iftar this weekend.
